Damn Poets is full of compact, radio-ready songs: simple melodies and shamelessly memorable choruses relate odes to disc jockeys (“Hello DJ”) and Miss Belgium, as well as a tale of a haunted supermarket, and the easiest whodunit in history (“Open and Shut”).
If 2011 were 1920, and Holland were Ireland, Paul G. Hunt would be drunkenly strolling along the banks of the Liffey, taking off his hat for comely ladies and turning his Dublin encounters into brilliant, unintelligible prose. And if the early 21st century were the late 19th, and the Rhine were the Mississippi, he would be a playful rascal on and off of riverboats, getting into all kinds of interesting trouble along the way.
In this life, however, he shops for groceries and writes simple songs about this complicated modern life.
